Nearly 6 million fraud and cyber crimes are committed every year across the UK, with one in 10 people falling to scams, according to a new survey.
The findings from the Crime Survey for England and Wales show that fraud is now the most common crime likely to be experienced by the general population, with people 20 times more likely to be a victim of fraud than robbery and 10 times more likely to suffer fraud than theft.
The most common types of fraud were bank and credit account fraud, with 2.5 million incidents, followed by "non-investment" fraud, such as scams related to online shopping.
Banks work extremely hard to protect their customers and stopped 7 in every 10 of attempted fraud last year. The industry is continually evolving its response to fraud as it develops, investing in new detection and verification tools. (Fraudsters are) increasingly targeting people directly.
